This guy is selling his web-site business on ebay along with my picture (the bike image). I guess this is against the rules right ? Not that I'm going to do anything about it, just wanted to know.

Thanks.

Seems like resale to me. I would contact the seller. This is a shady deal any way you look at it!

I wonder.  If he's selling everything on, why wouldn't that transfer the purchased license as well?  Requiring a purchaser to relicense all the imagery in all their brochures and websites and the like seems an unreasonable burden to me.

It looks like you're not buying the domain name, just the code that runs the site (which includes the photo). This allows him to sell this "website" over and over.

I think a lot of it would boil down to how the business and the sales are structured wouldn't it?  It it's a corporation and the corporation owns the license and the new buyer buys the corporation then the license never transferred ownership- the corporation did.

So he's selling a template?

Yeah, he is apparently selling a template. See here:

Anyway, I don't intend to do anything as it looks as the image was purchased in order to promote the template. I doubt that anyone who buys the template will leave the same image after he registers it with a different domain.

Thanks.
